The Lyrics

The czar went away
Red was there to stay
And Russia became
Nation with a new name

Soviet Union plan
Lenin was the man
With Joseph Stalin
Trotsky's axe fallin'

Kulaks in Siberia
With famine and hysteria
Stalin declared lives as void
Because he was paranoid

He took eastern Europe, too
And Khrushchev, banging a shoe, nyet
(...nyet) Soviet Union

nyet nyet nyet nyet nyet nyet nyet nyet nyet nyet
nyet nyet nyet nyet nyet nyet nyet nyet nyet nyet

nyet nyet nyet nyet nyet nyet nyet nyet nyet nyet
nyet nyet nyet nyet nyet nyet nyet nyet nyet nyet

People waiting in line
For hours for a loaf of bread
Leonid Brezhnev and detente
Yuri Andropov we dread

They went to Afghanistan
They learned their lesson the hard way, man

Mikhail Gorbachev came
Perestroika yes sir
Chernobyl sealed their fate
Things won't be as they were

nyet nyet nyet nyet nyet nyet nyet nyet nyet nyet

(Soviet Union, oh Soviet Union)

Great job!

As a bona fide (and even certified!) cold warrior may I congratulate you on a nifty little two-minute history lesson! It may seem a bit warped but I long for the days when our enemy was big, bad and armed to the teeth with nukes instead of small, evil and desperate for glory. Bottom line: the Soviets were the bad guys but at least they weren't crazy. Nice job!

Especially liked your clever use of HEM, HEM, HEM, HEM, HEM. Good job!
